Silversun Pickups, thelastplaceyoulook, Toadies Top BuzzFest 29 Lineup

Today the lineup for the fall 2012 edition of 94.5 The Buzz's BuzzFest 29 leaked onto Pollstar and the rock station's Web site. The fall fest is headed up by Silversun Pickups, Lit, Eve 6, Toadies, Three Days Grace, 10 Years and thelastplaceyoulook, who will be coming home from a month-long jaunt with 10 Years.

The all-day festival, set for October 6 at The Cynthia Woods Mitchell Pavilion, will be the local band's second main-stage BuzzFest appearance. They played BuzzFest 27 last fall on the strength of a handful of well-received singles on the modern-rock station.

The Silversun Pickups are touring now behind their newest disc, Neck of the Woods, and also coming into a bit of a stir with the Mitt Romney camp for the Republican presidential candidate using their "Panic Switch" for campaign events. The Silversuns obviously didn't want Romney's campiagn to be using their 2009 single.

Interestingly (right word?) enough, Lit and Eve 6 both made their BuzzFest debut 12 years ago at the 1999 edition of the festival.

The BuzzFest 29 lineup is as follows:

Main Stage

Three Days Grace The Toadies 10 Years Dead Sara Mark Tremonti (yes, the guitarist from Creed) Hanni El Khatib (played Fitzgerald's a few months back) thelastplaceyoulook

Side Stage
